Dawn on Worship for Postmodern Times

Today's Worship Quote is from the recent book by theologian Marva Dawn.

The postmodern world that surrounds us yearns for stability, morality, security, fidelity, faith, hope, and love. These deep needs can only be met through the One who meets our deepest needs for Truth. Let us make sure that the worship services we plan and conduct present that Truth in all its clarity and beauty and goodness.

- Marva J. Dawn, A Royal “Waste” of Time: The Splendor of Worshiping God and Being Church for the World, Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1999, 69.


The author says that she wants to purge our language of the phrase "going to church." We need to remind ourselves and our world that church is not somewhere we go; rather, something we are!

So, be the church!

Have a great week!
